Storyline

Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile has an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

Quotes

Roy: [looking at a promotional poster] A gay musical... called "Gay". That's quite gay. Gay musical... Aren't all musicals gay? This must be, like, the gayest musical ever made.

A Disappointment
24 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was greatly disappointed with this episode, It was a dismal end to the massive anticipation thats plagued me since the end of season one.

There were no geek/IT jokes, it revolved around poor tasting humor aimed at the disabled and homosexuals, and was somewhat predictable.

They've relied on the the awkwardness of moss for almost all of laughs in this episode.

If episode 2 does not revisit the incredibly funny IT/geek related humor as seen in the early episodes in Season one, I doubt this show will survive to create a third season.

I'm glad they stuck with the season one intro & theme music but am baffled as to why they didn't further explore the original characters and set.
